Hello my new me and the community!

Long story short: i'm a med student, not so great in it, probably hate it. I have f*kin unhealthy routines and no real hobby. My life degrades. Depression, anxiety, stress. Degradation overlaps. I know those bad habits are just keep pushing me to the edge of life, crossing the border to 'mislife'.

1st of February 2020. Nice day, determine quit all of those, refresh my self. Search google with 'reddit' at the end. Found this.

I'm happy to find a community to do this. I personally wrote a journal in a journal but it did not last long. i hope that this place would be more interesting for me to keep this stuff on air.

Quit gaming by change habits, easy.

My main goals are:

  • 1. Change routine: Sleep early, wakes early, drinks more water, eat less(i'm a bit overweight)
  • 2. Read books
  • 3. r/Stopgaming
  • 4.r/NoFap
  • 5. Set up routines( sleep wake hours, etc) (yes, this is listed twice)
  • 6. Do a hobby: programming
  • 7. Language enrichment.
  • 8. Social skills is crucial.
  • 9 Keep the progress to achivement active.
  • 10. Say "i love you" to myself

Converting to everyday tasks:

1. Sleep at 11:59pm - Wake at 4:30am - Noon rest: 1 hour

2. At least 20 pages or 20 minute reading books everyday

3. Learn Python: 30 minutes

4. English studying (vocabulary: 30m - 10 new words)

5. Clean the room: 10 minutes

6. Study: 2 hours

Hey man, welcome. Good for you to make these steps to change yourself for the better. Really like your goals and new habits. But be careful about those numbers. You will probably not learn 2 hours everyday or program for 30 minutes. But that is alright. Even just 5 minutes makes a difference. So keep going 🙂

Saying I love you to myself I have never really tried. Maybe, come time, I will install some gratitude in my life as well.

Man... You are right. I've just realized that i can't get all those number down in the record if i wasted a whole morning for gaming or sleeping cuz staying up late last night.

😄

Consistency is the key and time is the only way to give the key a chance to become reality. I will keep reminding myself this

Really Appreciate your reply 😄

    Mr Abbey and Mrs Abbess who were holding abbacy were gotten into abeyance. This aberration is caused by the incident that they abet abducting the kids with alphabets on their abdomen. They did not want to abdicate anyway.

    " i mean...lmao.

  • Spoiler

    I mean WTF i had a sleep for 10 hours. I know my biological routine was fucked up but i don't know it's that bad. glad that i decided to change.

    i did not get a 10 miles walk cuz it was late at night and my friend did not want me to go that far home when it's late.

    i realize that i like having my room cleaned. My virgo inside me grew up then.

    I did not study anything today, maybe i should lower the task down to 30 minute then rise it up later.

    Today paragraph is about a girl with mental disorder:

     

    Amanda has the ability to abide the ablution. The abnormal people are able to show their abhorrence to her but she refuse to abnegate or abjure the abhoring. She ablazely think that those people are abject. “You are not welcome aboard” she says.

    Anyway, i love you, myself!

One thing i will try doing tomorrow:

  • Jump 100 times!

A few years ago I decided I wanted to FINALLY learn programming after years of dipping my feet in C++, and I bought a course on Udemy. It's pretty thorough but I only made it about 1/4 of the way through before I got frustrated. Now I have to learn it in college for my cybersecurity degree.

A little bit personal, but...why cyber security then?

I love your journaling style - Simple but effective. The task list for each day is definitely a good Idea. I usually forget what i wanted to do and then instead lay in my bed or look at my smartphone. And seeing how many tasks you completed is definitely a good motivation booster.

Thank you, although i did not get the work done, i went visit my relative and stayed there, bring a light book with me and call it a weekend, it's somewhat an effective way, too, just keep your self...not alone. That's my only advise, hope you and i both get better soon!!

Yesterday, I slept at: 3AM

Today task progress

  • Read a book:
  • English studying 30m: 
  • Clean the room
  • Study:

Other achivements of the day

  • i wrote my plan in TDV (i'm not confortable saying it here)

  • Learned something new!

Say something about t'day:

  • Spoiler

    Not much to say for t'day, i just did not read a book but instead i did my hobby in TDV, talk and gain some experience in that field so afterall it was not such a non-productive day to me! realized that the idiom "quit cold turkey" is being used quite a lot, learned some new collocation, such as, "adjourn the meeting", "mitigating circumstances", "inclement weather", can't wait to learn something new from the book!

    My urge to gaming came back a little and then got off my head quickly! However, I fapped. I should stop that instantly!

    That's it for the day, i love you, my self!

     

One thing i will try doing tomorrow:

  • This is what i has been failed to do for quite sometime: Wakeup before 9AM !!!!!

It passes! I'm sorry I can't be more help than that, just wanted to let you know someone is paying attention to your journal and I'm hoping for the best! I know this was several hours ago so if you did relapse, no worries. Just start again. We all do it. 🙂

Thank you...luckily i did not. However the thought of it just came back drilling into my mind...just a pokemon game like the old time is just what i want....

that's why i'm here, guess i'm getting away from my computer and bring along a book with me....

Here's the update to my journal:

 ~~ Day 11 ~~

I wake up at: 7AM (overlept to 9AM: it has became a routine due to the long holiday)

Yesterday, I slept at: 3AM(i guess)

Today task progress

  • Read a book: 
  • English studying 30m: 
  • Clean the room
  • Study: today i learned .....

Note: except cleaning the room, i just don't do any of the task recently, i went out meeting people, and at home take a little rest cuz my sinusitis, doing other hobbies and listen to music

Not the productive ones, but the urge to relapse kept me from focus doing one, that's why i did the other thing

Other achivements of the day

  • Delete every fap material, damn this is hurt, those are such a treasure, i;ve been collecting them since 2016 (lmao)

  • Talked to a total stranger, about their stuff, talking to others and helping other the little things that you can is somehow satisfies me

  • Did not use the phone much (at all), i mean, this is such a huge ỉmprovement!

Say something about t'day:

  • Spoiler

    Not a productive day i guess, but i;m happy with the things i do, may be that is what matters right now. The urge to relapse may bring back my depression but i think i got the hang of it. So everything is...just fine 🙂 

    That's it for t'day, i love you, my self (finally i feel good saying this here)

     

One thing i will try doing tomorrow:

  • Drink more water: yes i need it, improve health is both what i want and need!!! start small, 3.2 litters i guess
